(Wyo)-Administrative Leave Extended Again On EWC Employee
TORRINGTON - Eastern Wyoming College officials say the paid administrative leave for an employee suspended last month apparently in connection with a cover-up of underage drinking on campus has been extended another week until next Wednesday.
School officials would not comment beyond the written statement on extending the leave, saying because it was a personnel issue they would release no information on why the employee was being investigated or any disciplinary action that may have resulted.
The staffer in question was one of two placed on paid leave for 10 days on October 24th due to "serious allegations in Student Services." The leave was later extended to Nov 15th, when the school announced that one of them was returning to work but had been reassigned.
At roughly the same time the initial announcement was released, Torrington Police Chief Tim Hurd said his department was investigating allegations that EWC employees had attempted to cover-up underage drinking on campus.
Chief Hurd told KNEB News two weeks ago that he expected his investigation to continue for several more weeks before deciding whether to recommend any criminal charges.
